CEIGRAM SEMINAR: ON DEFINING AND ESTIMATING ECONOMIC RESILIENCE USING COUNTERFACTUALS

Fecha: 14/05/2024

The next CEIGRAM Research Seminar will be given by Michael R. Carter, Distinguished Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis. It is organized by Eva Iglesias and the Spanish Association of Agrifood Economics, together with CEIGRAM. The seminar will be held on Monday, May 20, at 12:30 p.m., in the CEIGRAM Hall.

Michael Carter is the author of numerous scientific publications, examining the dynamics of poverty and productive social safety nets, the impetus for small farm adoption of improved technologies, and the evaluation of index insurance contracts as mechanisms for alleviating chronic poverty and deepening agricultural and rural financial markets. Carter is an elected member of the NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research), BREAD (Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development) and the American Agricultural Economics Association.

The Seminar is entitled: “On the Definition and Estimation of Economic Resilience using Counterfactuals”, co-authored by Mo Alloush, in which Professor Michael Carter will discuss the concept of economic resilience and present a quantitative metric based on the cumulative current and future losses experienced by a household exposed to a shock relative to a counterfactual measure of what its economic welfare would have been in the absence of the shock. The seminar will be presented in English.

The seminar will be given in person, but can also be followed online by requesting the registration form, which can be found at the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfada0u4jc3ZbtATkAA41_xuKE7BC0rs1zScehd_0rN9fXsjQ/viewform.
